Today at 12:00 BST Habbo has a short live stream of a prepared video which shown over 2,500+ Habbos about the new app. Habbo is coming to the iPad.
lt’s already out in Canada and the rest of the world in a few weeks. It will also be in Android store by August (hopefully).
Above is the live stream video which Habbo have been advertising for the past few weeks. They been adding photos to Twitter, promoting it in game and additional things… But no one knows what this brand new update is? We will find out today though. The 4.4.14th.
Update 11:01 BST:
Only 1 hour to go now. You can join discussions on multiple websites across the fansites.
Update 11:09 BST:
New Tweet by Habbo.
Update 12:00 BST:
New live countdown for 1 minute and background beat. Watch now.
Today Habbo have released the list of twelve fansites which have received and will remain with official status. All of these twelve sites have their own purposes and needs… But is one of them a fraud and overall copy?
The last time official status was up for grabs the infamous fansite, HabboSecrets, made a huge fuss on how official fansites work. If we remember correctly, it caused Habbox, HFFM, ThisHabbo and SnapHabbo to share their opinions on the fuss. Two of the four even strongly agreed and went on to make their own ‘blackouts’.
HabboSecrets was owned by Vado and become a huge hit in the Habbo community. It followed quest and badge guides but during official status pending, it had not made a rumoured shortlist. The reason for this very popular fansite not becoming official was because of its cause – to create guides.
During the time of Vado closing HabboSecrets, another fansite came to replace it… HabboQuests. HabboQuests’ idea was simply to copy HabboSecrets. The layout and features were completely the same as HabboSecrets. They also become very popular caused by the need for a badge-guide community site.
That leaves us with a question, does HabboQuests deserve to become official? It’s been made official even though offering the guides which stopped HS from becoming official. It also breaks another rule where Habbo can change for its officials. No money should be gained for fansite owners… HabboQuests had a deal with BittyBay to advertise which could have resulted in a lot of money gained by the owners.
Not only that buy the original owner, Badge, gave up the fansite to create HabboExtra, a now official fansite too. It’s very possible that he has done this to be running two official fansites. We will never know until he comes forward.
Now you can be the judge. Should HabboQuests have become official? Maybe the Habbo staff only disliked Vado… but that would be going against the Habbo Way?
Anyway, we wish the best of luck to HabboQuests and all other official fansites!
Other Notes: Vado was going to be an owner at HQ but was cancelled and Badge left HQ due to ‘real life’ issues. Badge then opened up HabboExtra very sharply even though he has ‘real life’ issues.

HabboCreation have discovered some updates to the new test floor planning. It’s not currently available but can be found on these screenshots. We hope you enjoy.
Post by HabboCreation:
Creating your own room layouts has been a long wished feature by many users. Habbo has been developing this for a really long time, and it looks like they are finishing up.
This is what some habbo’s might recognise, the floor editor was “accidentally” made available for a few minutes after an update. This was patched quickly, but (in some hotels) the rooms were allowed to stay.
This is the new version, still being worked on. Which means that it can still change completely, or even may be canceled at all.
When released, it will be available to all BC members, allowing self designed layouts, with different heights, and possible option to move/replace the door!
The first screen, is a 2D version, the second is a 3D version, which is the most likely to be used.
A new setting had been added for all users to filter the chat which is being spoken in their rooms. They can now change a certain word to appear as ‘bobba’.
If the room creator adds ‘annoying’ as a filter, no one in the room will be able to say ‘annoying’. It sounds like a very useful tool for some users.
It’s available for all users so you can try it out now in your settings area which is located with the rest of your rooms information. Enjoy yourselves!
